Life sings only love songs.
Life, or in this case, nature is constantly humming, singing, whispering sweet nothings in our ears. But to listen, that's the key. Life sings the most beautiful songs to us as we hustle through our days. They are tunes of: slow down, take it easy, care for yourself, watch out for others. And, the ever-present song, "I love you."
How to hear this sweetness when things seem so disruptive and disjointed? Quiet the inner chatter, knowing that these harmonious currents are there to sooth, inspire and fill you with all that really matters. It is not so hard to do. Just stop for a moment and let the words in your head float away. Or, look at the clear, blue sky and imagine that it drifts into your mind.
I think doing this a couple of times a day keeps you dancing to the right tunes and feeling better for it. And if you can't hear these sweet sounds, breathe them in. They are there for your using, for your nourishment. We do much and have much to do, but it is so helpful to be fed by all that is higher and love is indeed higher than most of what we are occupied by.
Tune in, let go of all that is not useful and sail with life. The invitation is there. Those love songs are continuous and life sings them to you.
"Life is wonderful!"
I'm an author/illustrator of many children's books, over 100. I've also had 26 of my own licensed art galleries across the country and filled them with my art and happy thoughts. Those thoughts have been put into gifts art pieces and been the basis of my King Features syndicated newspaper panel. Some of those Happy Musings are the inspiration for this blog, along with other daily observations. Enjoy!
